This 4-book series is an innovative addition to the support materials used by English teachers working at the senior primary level. The books aim to develop English skills through discussing, reading and writing about a number of accessible Australian and New Zealand contemporary poets. The books use a language-based teaching methodology. With this approach, the language of the poem, including vocabulary, grammar and usage, is examined before students consider meaning. Students will develop their language skills, practice original writing, and understanding of poetry as a literary form.
